Hi monks, I'm brand new to coding (under a month's worth) and have found this site to be one of my gotos for info. The script I'm attempting to write establishes a telnet connection to an HP Procurve switch, reboots it, accesses it's extended boot menu, clears out all but it's basic files and reboots the switch. I'm running into a snag when I issue a command to list all current files (which is ls for this switch) I'm trying to capture the output into a string or an array, but it doesn't capture anything. the command is issued while watching the switch and I can see it list all the files, but the string or array I tell it to dump to is empty. below is the code focusing on getting the info into the array. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
$| = 1;
my $console_server = ('TRN-13-MRV-CON-07');
my $console_mgmtA = ('2013');
establishing Telnet connection
my $telnet = new Net::Telnet (Timeout=>10, Errmode=>'return', Port =>
#to see what's in the string
#take the string and create an array
@array = split("\n",$output);
#see what's in the array
